Here are our young carer films, where they share in their own words, how people can support them as carers and how caring impacts on their lives.
Young carers provide invaluable support to their loved ones. We know that caring can impact on a young person’s health, social life, education, and self-confidence.
This is where you can find information on support for young carers, resources to help you understand and identify young carers and places to go for further information.
There are specialist suport services for young carers across the region. Find support, take part in activities and meet other young carers.
